    I see - few minutes ago get second e-mail, this time by Mike Sartain. He talk the same about Rayn, and ask me advice somebody else. So this time I recommended Alternative Games. If anyone else have other ideas - you probably need to send it directly to Mike Sartain.

    Correct, Sartain is on this team needing more Linux/OpenGL developers, etc.

    I like to maintain a healthy dose of skepticism, myself, but I'm reasonably convinced that this is a reality. And by "this", I mean, that Valve is looking into hiring someone to do this work. Unfortunately, "looking into hiring" is a long way from "having usable, released software"; so although I am sure it will come eventually once they hire someone, it could be months or years. It depends on how fast the hired-person works
    The doubter doubt for a reason, SOURCE/STEAM on linux has been hyped by phoronix "its this summer" for like 3years. Every other game-based news article then re-cited essentially some in-passing, non-citable, statement in the telegraph newspaper around the time that STEAM for Mac was coming out.

    STEAM/SOURCE on linux would be a big thing! really big but with all the over-hype from phoronix over the years that it is just coming, with other source-based games (ie postal3) putting linux-native in doubt... to hear something like this the day before April the 1st simple stinks of tryhard trolling from Phoronix.

    I /really/ hope that it does come, I would <3 to play DOTA2 native as well as get back into CSS, but Phoronix's trackrecord is still too prominant in mine and others minds on STEAM/SOURCE on linux and Phoronix's poor sensationalistic reporting based upon the flimsiest of rumour .

    Until there is a citable statement from a Valve hosted domain this is just more trolling from Phoronix to the linux gamers that so wish their platform is taken more seriously

    Okay, I'll bite: Maybe try Edward Rudd?

    He ported Penumbra/Amnesia and has worked on many of the Humble Bundle Games.

    Wouldn't it be funny if Gordon started at Valve. Making HL working on a free OS. Gordon would be a Free Man

    Yeah, but even trolling idiots come out and say "April Fools!" after about 50 people are like :OOOOOOOOOOOOO REALLY????

    Michael has repeated dozens of times that it's NOT April Fools.

    or this message should make it incredibly clear - http://phoronix.com/forums/showthrea...609#post256609 - I've never mentioned Sartain publicly (yet) on Phoronix and that he magically emails the other forum commenter after emailing Gabe? But as said, will push for them to do a Phoronix video in April.
